What a Smartphone, the (Gionee Marathon M5 Plus) with a mammoth battery life!
Yes you heard it right, the Gionee Marathon M5 Plus Smartphone has a 5020 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery with superfast charging!!! Simply put this translates into 21 hours of talk time and 619 hours of standby time.The company also claims that this smartphone’s battery will retain 90% of its capacity even after 600 charging cycles. If this is true then this would solve a major problem of smartphone batteries degrading after prolonged use. In addition it also has a 6 inch Full HD AMOLED display with a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera. Available in 2 exclusive colors Champagne Gold and Polar Gold. There is also a fingerprint scanner at the front.

The company has provided a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6582 octa-core processor which is slow and one would have expected atleast 1.8GHz. RAM stands at 3 GB and internal storage at an ample 64 GB extendable upto 128 GB. This phone was first launched in China in December of last year and has only now been introduced to Indian markets. It is supposedly an upgraded version of the Gionee Marathon M5 which has an even greater battery life of 6020 mAh. The OS is Android 5.1 Lollipop which is bit disappointing especially as other smartphones in this price bracket provide 6.0 Android Marshmallow. The 208g of the handset is considered moderate and should not cause any difficulty for users. Thickness is 8.4mm so new buyers should be ready to carry around a phone which is a bit bulky. The Gionee Marathon M5 Plus has a full metal body including buttons which looks quite robust as well as quaint.
The 368 ppi display is quite awesome and and the 75% screen to body ratio adds a couple of brownie points to the overall user experience. Additionally the phone comes with a 1 Year Warranty. Also included in the package are a 2 Amps Adapter Charger, headphones and USB Data Cable. Sound quality is also quite decent and this smartphone is capable enough for a normal gaming experience though it remains to be seen how it performs with high-end games. Along with the expanded features the company has also gone for an image makeover and a new logo of Gionee is visible on phone which gives it a high-tech look.
The price is on the higher fringes and reasonable pricing could have hit the ball out of the park but all in all its a pretty decent phone and worth a buy!
